    How to Make a Tree Slice Chalkboard

This metallic bowl is great for dressing up end tables, entryways, and even dining room tables. The possibilities are endless for this versatile decoration. Plus, it’s so affordable, you can make more than one! Here’s how to paint this sleek metallic bowl in a few steps.

  1. PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and use a drop cloth to protect from overspray. Make sure your bowl is completely clean and free of any dirt or dust.
  2. PAINT: Place the bowl upside down on your drop cloth. Then, shake your can of Universal Metallic spray paint in Aged Copper for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Holding the can 8-12” away from the bowl, spray 2-3 medium coats a few minutes apart over the entire outside. Let the bowl dry completely, and then flip it over and spray an additional 2-3 medium coats on the inside.
  3. FINISH: Let the bowl dry completely for 24 hours before using. Once it’s dry, add decorative balls and display!
